GCSE English Literature visit Jekyll & Hyde
17 March 2020
Last Friday evening, a group of Year 10 and 11 pupils travelled to Edge Hill University's Arts Centre for a performance of Jekyll & Hyde.
Before the performance pupils enjoyed a tailored workshop, an evening meal and a short tour of the university's library.
Big Brum’s production of ‘The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’ is a powerful drama, rich in imagery that illuminates the themes at the heart of Stevenson’s complex text.
Robert Louis Stevenson wrote his story in 1886 but it has continued to resonate profoundly for readers to this day, taking hold of our imaginations.
English teacher, Miss Smith, who organised the visit said, "The trip was a huge success, the student guides commented on the manners, friendliness and academic ability of our pupils. The pupils were fantastic throughout the entire visit!"
